Accreditations and Compliance
We are always working behind the scenes to ensure that we are meeting and exceeding what is expected of us as a company.
Below are some of our accreditations, affiliations and where to find our SSIP and PPQ compliance information.
Advanced CHAS accreditation
We are proud to be holders of an Advanced CHAS membership.
Giving our potential clients peace of mind that we have not only demonstrated compliance with CHAS standards, in line with SSIP core criteria & UK Health and Safety Legislation - but have also demonstrated full compliance with 9 modules of PAS 91.
in addition to Health & Safety, these modules include:
Public, product, employers & fleet insurance
Director identity checks
Company financial verification
Corporate & professional standing
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Anti bribery & corruption
The British Board of Agreement
The BBA was established in 1966 and is now a non profit, independent certification body which offers inspection and certification services in regard to construction work and materials in the UK.
The aluminium we use to create bespoke gutter systems carries BBA certification. It has been tested for quality during the manufacturing process, compatibility, durability, workability, abrasion, weathering and fire resistance to name but a few.
The production sites are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
We do not source or use materials or that do not reach the high standards of BBA testing and certification.
Construction Industry Training Board
Our installers are each required to attend and achieve site safety training and certification with The Construction Industry Training Board, as a minimum requirement.
Each operative will have, or will be working towards obtaining a CSCS card relevant to their job role and responsibilities.
As part of their continuous personal development each member of staff attends extended industry relevant health and safety training on a monthly basis, covering all aspects of UK H&S legislation.
As a minimum requirement each installer will hold certification for:
Site Safety Plus- H&S Awareness (CITB)
Working at Height
Disclosure & Barring Service
Every Gutters4u installer will have undergone an enhanced DBS (formally CRB) criminal history check as part of their induction to employment.
The enhanced check is the highest level available and is requested for individuals working with children and vulnerable adults.
Having these checks in place not only affords us and our clients reassurance, it also allows us to work on schools, colleges, care homes, hospitals and other public buildings.
Evidence of checks can be made available on request.
